On the 23rd May, a lecture on the theme Circular Economy was held at Agrupamento de Escolas de Ílhavo, by Professor Victor Neto, from the University of Aveiro. The professor has challenged the students to think about the waste that many of known brands produce and warned about the need of transforming and reusing it. This way, the students were asked to think about possible solutions to use this and other waste.

After that, the students had the opportunity to present the 8 projects they had developed, so that the best 3 could be selected by the jury. These 3 projects will be presented at the Final Multiplier Event, on the 7th June.

Once more, this activity followed the purpose of raising awareness of Engineering and its importance nowadays, promoting a professional career on technologies and engineering areas and, simultaneously, attracting more and more young people to engage courses on these technical areas.
